First DIPG genomics data freeze and public release

We are pleased to announce the first public release of data from the International DIPG Genomics Repository. Although collection remains ongoing, we putting an intermediate freeze on the data in order to solicit feedback from the academic community. At the current time we have DNA copy number data for 94 cases of DIPG and 162 cases of non-brain stem paediatric high grade glioma available for analysis and download. We would welcome any comments and suggestions on how to improve the Repository and look forward to working with researchers around the world to make the most of this valuable data.

Chris Jones, Michael Baudis and Andre von Büren.

New PhD student joins Zurich group

Ni Ai, a new PhD student with a Master of Philosophy (Biomedical Engineering) from the University of Hongkong has joined the Zurich group. Besides working on technical aspects and systems biology of genomic data in cancer, Ni's disease specific projects will be centered in the area of childhood brain tumors, specifically DIPG and related entities. She will partially be supported through the grant from the "The Cure Starts Now" foundation.
